Japanese Breakfast has released the new soundtrack to the open-world video game Sable. The 32-track collection, featuring instrumental and vocal music written by Michelle Zauner, complimented by ambient and experimental music.

Of the soundtrack, Zauner says, “I was so lucky Daniel Fineberg and Gregorios Kythreotis from Shedworks invited me onto this game so early on. I was immediately captivated by the world they’d built, a desert planet filled with mysterious natural and architectural wonders, and the story they’d imagined, one of a young girl coming of age through exploration. It was important to me that each biome in this world felt unique. I used woodwinds and vocal layering to make monumental ruins feel ancient and unknown, industrial samples and soft synths to make atomic ships feel cold and metallic, classical guitar and bright piano to make encampments feel cozy and familiar. I wanted the main themes to recall iconic works of Joe Hisaishi and Alan Menken, to fill the listener with the childlike wonder of someone on the precipice of a grand discovery.”

Japanese Breakfast’s current release Jubilee, is out now via Dead Oceans. Michelle Zauner’s New York Times Best Selling memoir, Crying In H Mart, soon to be adapted for the screen by MGM’s Orion Pictures, is out now via Knopf.
